May 23rd, 2016, 10:43 am by Greg

The schedule of bands for the 2016 Rockin’ on the River concert series in Troy has been announced. And it’s easily the best line-up since the concert series was first instituted…

The concerts take place rain or shine at 5pm on Wednesdays from June 15-August 3. And this summer for the first time all eight concerts will take place in Troy’s Riverfront Park, rather than the Green Island Bridge parking lot.
